As an agency of the State of South Carolina, Coastal Carolina University participates in the statewide purchasing card program which is designed to better manage the low-dollar supply purchases, which benefits both the University and the vendor community.

To successfully acquire a purchasing card from Procurement Services, please follow the guidelines below.

Keep in mind, only full-time slotted employees may acquire a purchasing card.

  • Begin filling out the purchasing card application and turn it in at least three weeks prior to the prospective purchase date.
  • The P-Card application must be signed by all obligatory parties and sent to Procurement Services.
  • Procurement will send an email stating that a P-Card Exam must be taken prior to receiving a P-Card 
  • All training materials will be in that email.
  • Procurement Services will set up the exam on Moodle for the employee.
  • Once the employee has passed the examination, Procurement will request the Purchase Card from Bank of America.
  • An email will be sent to the employee to set up a training date.
  • During training, the employee will be issued his or her P-Card.

NOTE: The purchasing card may NOT be used for travel expenses.
